Global soccer star Hope Solo wants to have the misdemeanor assault charges against her dismissed. Local law enforcement officials have other ideas.
She has been accused of drunkenly assaulting family members in an incident that resulted in a 911 call in which one claimed, "Hope Solo is going psychotic!"
That was June. In municipal court Monday, her lawyer asked for a new court date to file motions to dismiss the charges and to exclude evidence.
She was granted the new date, but faces an uphill battle to clear her name after being arrested for domestic violence. Solo's next court date is November 4.
While she aims to have evidence (including hearsay) and the entire case dismissed, City of Kirkland lawyers listed 11 officers to testify as witnesses.
Solo was at the hearing and left hand in hand with her husband, former University of Washington and Seattle Seahawks tight end Jerramy Stevens.
Police reports claim that the 32-year-old's family members had just let her back into their lives when she fought them early one morning this summer.
